Ka-Bars "Short Tanto" – classic Ka-Bar form with 5-1/4“ Tanto-Blade, Blade width of approx. 23.0 mm made of black-coated 1095 steel and with double-sided hand protection; here: with matt black slip-resistant Kraton handle and glass fiber reinforced Nylon Form-Blade with fastener loop.- It is a not too massive, classical working knife for nearly all tasks with an excellent price/performance ratio... regarding the price there is no difference between the designs with the original 7“ blade and the shortened 5-1/4“ blade! -
Kindly note the following: At the 'small' Ka-Bars not only the blades are shorter, but the whole knife has been virtually “shrunked in size”, therefore, the knife will not be suitable for too big hands.
